Matthew Stone (born 1982 in London, England) is a London-based artist. He is part of the South London art collective !Wowow!.
Matthew graduated from Camberwell College of Arts, London in 2004. He currently stages performances and films. In 2007, his first solo show, entitled "Futurehindsight", took place at UNION in London. In November 2009, Stone topped the arts section in a "Power players Under 30" list compiled by the Sunday Times. Matthew frequently collaborates with FKA Twigs and created the album artwork for 2019's Magdalene.
In November 2011, Matthew had an exhibition at Kathy Grayson's "The Hole" Gallery entitled Optimism as Cultural Rebellion, the same name as his blog. Stone has had subsequent exhibitions at the Hole in 2018, 2020 and 2023.
Matthew paints with AI. In a uniquely hybrid process, Matthew begins with hand-painted brushstrokes, which he first paints onto glass before photographing and cutting them out to establish a digital archive of individual painterly marks. These brushstrokes then imprint and drape around Stone’s virtual 3D models who populate his vibrant and ethereal canvases as painted avatars.
